LG KG800 Numeric Keypad Backlit??

Hi, I have had my chocholate (LG KG800) for 16 mths now, and just read in a forum, that the numeric keys are backlit! Is this true, as I have NEVER had my numeric keypad backlit, EVER! This has been a real pain when trying to place a call in dimly lit places or the dark. The phone was sent into a repair centre on a different warrantee matter, but it still was not backlit when it was returned to me. Can you please clarify. Cheers, Jules

    Thank you for the response. Mine has NEVER worked, very dim or not, from the day I got it. The fact that it does backlight is new to me, and the response I got from LG call centre was "don't worry about it if your phone still works". UMMM... not happy!! Phone out of warrantee, (of course) but I have requested a warrantee extension to repair the fault, but don't like my chances. People, be VERY wary of this phone, nice but no customer satisifaction from LG when things go wrong, and the chocolate has many glitches and issues...... Jules

I sent an email to lg´s customer service and the cleaver guy told me that the Chocolate doesn´t come with the backlight keypad. Lie! Mine didn´t work until one day messing around with it I manage to turn it on!! then i got myself into the beach...with my cell in my pocket. I put it in some dry rice (don´t know if you know this solution) for a couple of days and I got it back to work (rice absorbs all of the water from the cellphone). Now I needed to re-configure my LG and I can´t make the backlight to work anymore.
I´ll let you know of any progress.

Go to the power saving and turn it off, they might work then. Mine did for three days and then they went off again!!

Yes they are backlit but they light is very dim, If i slide mine open and wait for the screen to turn off then I can only slightly see the backlight going off, might just be a problem with mine to though :P

Sounds like your anti-theft immobilizer has kicked in. As long as you have the original lock, and key fob with immobilizer chip, the standard way to re-pair the key and lock is to remove the battery leads for 30 minutes and reconnect.

You are better reading Codes with a code reader which will give you an accurate display with a numerical code.

There are a few clues here.

I think it is the keyboard driver. If you go to, you should be able to find it, unless of course, there is a fault in the keyboard.

After reading several forums when my LG 42PC3D died, I went in thinking I had the answer. It would turn on, but then off immediately. The Y-sus board had a blown fuse. I didn't want to risk frying...

Y and X-sus boards should be replaced at the same time due to they way they communicate with eachother. I suspect that the x-sus is also faulty.

Thank you!

How do I turn on my backlit keyboard on my dell with windows vista?


Sorry for the last answer. The expert probably didn't understand your question.

If you have purchased the optional backlit keyboard, the right-arrow key will have the backlit keyboard icon on it. The backlit keyboard provides visibility in dark environments by illuminating all symbols on the keys. The settings for this keyboard can be personalized by using
Dell QuickSet.

Backlit Keyboard Brightness Settings – Press <Fn> + right-arrow key to toggle between the three lighting states (in the given order).
The three lighting states are:
a. full keyboard/touch pad brightness
b. half keyboard/touch pad brightness
c. no lighting

Hope this helps. If you need the manual for this computer, it is located here:

I just read in another forum that the LCD display appearing black (but backlit) could be due to the ribbon connectors being loose behind the screen.

However, this would most likely void your warranty if your unit is still under one.

Hope this works...
